Turn Your Foursquare Check-Ins Into Jewelry With 3D Printing
Meshu let's anyone turn their own memorable experiences into unique geometric shapes to be worn as jewlery
How would you like to wear a visualization of all the places you have traveled? Or maybe just a necklace designed from destinations that hold a sentimental value to you? Meshu, a new jewelry start up, gives offers the ability to do just that.
The initiative, started by data visualizer Sha Hwang and interaction designer Rachel Binx lets anyone select a series of places either arbitrarily or from plugged-in Foursquare data to generate wearable jewelry. Chosen locations are then triangulated on a map to produce an intricate geometric shape. The shape is then transformed into earrings or a necklace using 3D printing or lasercutting technology.
